Books and blogs

It's been a long-time between drinks for me and my blog. I haven't been so well of late, but things are looking up and I wanted to let people know about a few things on the horizon:

Firstly, on May 29 at the Northcote Library I will be having a chat with Stella Prize-winning author Clare Wright about her book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka. Also women, writing, politics, creativity... ie. we'll just be having a good ol' gab-fest and we'd love you to join us.

Secondly, you should all read this lovely interview with Clare Bowditch over at Gab Williams' book book blog blog (along with all her other wonderful posts) - where she mentions that she'd "marry 'The Divided Heart' by Rachel Power". Well, shucks, if only she'd asked, I reckon The Divided Heart would've said quite liked to marry Ms Bowditch too!

And thirdly... I feel very sad - and more than a little distressed - that The Divided Heart is no longer in print and no-one can get their hands on a copy. I still get lots of lovely messages from readers, but also from prospective readers seeking a copy and I hate that I can't supply them with one.

So I'm in the beginning stages of seeking some new interviews with the plan of creating an updated edition. I don't know whether I will need to self-publish or if I'll find a willing publisher, but I am determined to find a way to get TDH out there again. Watch this space...
